Polo has been termed the "sport of kings”.
However, one does not have to be a king to play this exciting game.
We are fortunate in this area to have the Brandywine Polo Club, which is one of the oldest clubs on the East Coast with a rich history and four tournament- size playing fields as well as a full-size playing arena.
Brandywine Polo Club was started in 1950 by James McHugh, a former intercollegiate player at Yale.
Impressively, only a few short years after the club was established, the Brandywine Polo Club team won the 1956 U.S. Open Polo Championship®.
Brandywine Polo Club is committed to making polo accessible to everyone.
With a polo school that dates back to 1963, the Brandywine Polo School has continued to offer an introductory program that is perfect for anyone interested in pursuing polo regardless of age or experience level.
It’s a relaxed environment that current and former students claim “is the most fun you can have on four legs!”.
They provide safe school horses for every level and their “Orientation to Polo” is a graduated program which covers everything from rules to riding skills, as well as training and safety, which are the foundation for great players.
The season runs from late May through September during which they host Friday Night Polo (gates open at 4:30 pm) and Sunday polo games (gates open at 1:30 pm).
